  1. C++ Lecture 5 Monday, 18 July 2005

  2. Chapter 7 Classes, continued • const objects and const member functions • Composition: objects as members of classes • friend functions and friend classes • “this” pointer • Dynamic memory allocation

  3. Const Objects Time wakeup(6, 45, 0); // non-const const Time noon(12, 0, 0) // const • A const object can not change its value; a const object is initialized once (by its constructor). • A const object can not call a member function, unless the member function is also declared a const.

  4. Const Member Function void Time::getHour( ) const { return hour; } • A const function cannot modify the object. C.f. 7.1-7.3

  5. Time Class Example, 7.1-3 class Time { public: Time( int = 0, int = 0, int = 0 ); // default constructor // set functions void setTime( int, int, int ); // set time void setHour( int ); // set hour … // get functions (normally declared const) int getHour() const; // return hour … // print functions (normally declared const) void printUniversal() const; // print universal time void printStandard(); // print standard time private: int hour; // 0 - 23 (24-hour clock format) … }; // end class Time

  6. Software Engineering Principles • Principle of least privilege: If objects or variables do not change, or functions that do not modify objects, declare them as const.

  7. Composition: Objects as Members of Classes class Employee { public: … private: char firstName[25]; char lastName[25]; const Date birthDate; const Date hireDate; };

  8. Constructor for composition Employee(const char *, const char *, const Date &, const Date &); How to initialize the objects inside a class like birthDate and hireDate?

  9. Composition • Example Fig.7.6-7.10 • Date class and implementation • Employee class and implementation • main( ) function

  10. Friend Functions and Classes • A friend function of a class is defined outside that class's scope, yet has the right to access private members of the class. • Friendship is neither symmetric nor transitive.

  11. Declare a class as Friend class ClassA { friend class ClassB; … }

  12. Declare a function as friend class Count { friend void setX(Count &, int); public: Count() {x = 0;} void print( ); private: int x; }; C.f. Fig.7.11-7.12

  13. "this" Pointer • Every object has access to its own address through a pointer called “this”. I.e., “this” is a pointer pointing to the object itself. C.f. Fig.7.13

  14. Cascading member function calls using "this" Class Time { public: Time &setTime( …) } // SetTime() returns a reference t.setHour(18).setMinute(30). … C.f. Fig.7.14-7.16

  15. Dynamic Memory Allocation • The "new" operator allocate memory; the "delete" operator free memory TypeName *typeNamePtr; typeNamePtr = new TypeName; delete typeNamePtr;

  16. Allocate an Array int *arrayPtr = new int [10]; delete [ ] arrayptr; • new automatically invokes the constructor and delete automatically invokes the class destructor

  17. Static Class Members • If a data member is declared as static, only one copy exists and is shared by all the instances of the class. class Employee { … static int count; }

  18. Public and Private Static Class Members • Public static: accessible through any object of that class. • Private static: accessible only through public member functions. • Static member function cannot access nonstatic data/function. C.f. Fig. 7.17-7.19

  19. Problem 1 • Why the following code segment is a programming error? #include <cstring> int main( ) { char *p, s[ ] = “source”; strcat(p,s);

  20. Problem 2 • What are printed by cout? char s1[50] = “jack”; char s3[50], s2[50] = “jill”; cout << strcpy(s3,s2) << endl; cout <<strcat(strcat(strcpy(s3,s1), “and ” ), s2) << endl; cout << strlen(s1) + strlen(s2) << endl; cout << strlen(s3) << endl;

  21. Problem 3, Find error class Example { public: Example(int y = 10) : data(y) { } int getIncData() const { return ++data; } static int getCount( ) { cout << “Data is ” << data << endl; return count; } private: int data; static int count; }
